Thanks Cameron. I spoke at Georabble a while back about mapping in OSM
already. At the moment I'm seeing if anyone has anything they wanted to
showcase/talk about, or if who are interested in being involved on the
organising side. Once we've locked in the venue and date etc. I'll announce
details for those looking to come along.
